Unprecedented business disruption has forced procurement organizations to refocus on supporting critical business operations and supplier relationships, resulting in a pivot toward both spend cost reduction and supply assurance.
In this session, attendees will gain deeper insight into procurement's new key priorities in 2021 including critical skills and capabilities, how the pandemic has shaped this year's international procurement agenda and other results from Hackett's brand new 2021 Procurement Key Issues Study.
This session with Chris Sawchuck, the US based lead for The Hackett Group, is an opportunity for procurement leaders to gain insight into the priorities of supply management organizations more globally, while allowing them to compare not only their priorities, but how they have ranked them.
This study does not end there, but goes further to highlight the investment procurement organizations are making in capabilities to deliver on those priorities. Such capabilities include digital procurement tools where the study will provide procurement leaders insight into the current adoption, projected growth rates and levels of satisfaction with various technologies.
